Did you know that the Divinity Library has a collection of cuneiform tablets? See these amazing forms of an ancient writing system and learn about how these tablets ended up at Vanderbilt.  Join Senior Lecturer in the Divinity School Annalisa Azzoni as she discusses the  collaborative effort to catalogue, identify, and make known the cuneiform tablets of the James Stevenson Collection, and how the "Cultures in Clay" exhibit came together to document these artifacts dating up to four millennia ago.
